Best of Ecouterre: So Long 2009, Hello 2010!

As 2009 drew to a close, Ecouterre took the opportunity to look back at some of our favorite stories of the year, including our favorite up-and-coming green designers, the coolest wearable technology, the most bizarre eco-fashions, and our most hyped-about posts.

Looking forward into the new year, we asked 10 of our favorite eco-fashion designers, including Bahar Shahpar, Karen Stewart and Howard Brown, and John Patrick of Organic what they wished for 2010.

We also gathered 16 eco-fashion movers and shakers, including a vegan shoe designer, a model/entrepreneur, a book author, an eco-boutique owner, a textile artist, and several of our media comrades in the trenches to peer into the crystal ball and offer their forecasts for the year ahead.

Ecouterre is a website devoted to the future of clothing and textile design. We're dedicated to showcasing and supporting designers who not only contemplate cut, form, and drape, but also a garment's social and environmental impact, from the cultivation of its fibers to its use and disposal.
